Virtue Worldwide is looking for a Group Creative Director in Brooklyn, NY, USA.
As a Group Creative Director, you’d be responsible for overseeing an ever-shifting ‘portfolio’ of ongoing creative work, new projects, and pitches. A core creative team will depend on you for guidance on the work itself, similar to a CD role. The difference is that your creative team may include CDs and ACDs, fairly senior creatives working under your direction.
You'll work with strategy and client management to ‘widen the doorway’ for excellent work from the very beginning. It will be on you to challenge the ask, the brief, the insight.
Provide creative direction for a number of projects simultaneously, making sure none of them backslide over the course of creative development.
Be a sounding board and supportive creative leader for the team under your direction, while at the same time making sure they know the expectations of the work.
Cultivate a culture of high-volume creativity. This means pushing your team to come up with lots and lots of ideas, knowing that most of them will either miss the mark strategically, creatively, or feasibly. From this process, beautiful gems can be unearthed.
Guide team in developing creative presentations, run mega pitches, be magnificent in front of clients, handle shoots, all the usual stuff.
Spend time getting familiar with work in Central and South America. You may be leading projects outside of the USA. You may even work on global projects.
Help your ECD build the broader creative vision for the agency.
Jump in to teach more junior creatives whenever the opportunity arises. Your knowledge is invaluable to them.
Make sure you and the creative department as a whole are aware of the work out there in the industry right now. Not just the bad stuff, but the ‘good’ stuff too.
Play a role in talent recruitment, book reviews, interviews, etc.
Work with the Business Development team to handle creds meetings, client engagement opportunities, etc.
Run some internal departmental meetings. Be an MC when needed.
